Whistleblower alleges hysterectomies, abuse of detained migrant women


A whistleblower nurse and lawyers for detainees say women have been abused by a gynecologist working for an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility in Georgia. Nurse Dawn Wooten and detainees’ lawyers said women described unnecessary gynecological procedures, including hysterectomies. Wooten says this happened even as other medical needs, including care and testing for COVID-19, were neglected.
